The Upcycle Company

Transforming DAF skim waste from animal harvest and prepared foods plants into high-quality valuable co-products while benefitting the natural environment.


Treats DAF skim prior to land disposal to remove most fats, oils, proteins and other matter that can degrade the environment where it is applied, yielding an environmentally beneficial fertilizer and other valuable co-products. Upcycling immediately benefits ESG and related compliance initiatives of companies generating or handling DAF skim.


Substantially reduces or eliminates chemical, trucking, disposal, and/or non-compliance costs associated with DAF skim handling, without increasing labor and other expenses because of our services-based model. Co-product revenue covers all implementation and operational expenses associated with the upcycling process.


A proven, turnkey service using our proprietary technology to upcycle millions of gallons of DAF skim since 2018. Our services have strengthened the environmental posture of our customers while generating valuable, high-quality co-products used in fertilizers, animal feed, biofuels, and cosmetics.

Our Service Upcycles a Plant’s DAF Skim Into Valuable Co-Products.


We manage the entire process 24x7
Upcycle facilities can be deployed either on-site as an extension of a plant’s wastewater pre-treatment system, eliminating the need to transport DAF skim, or at a remote hub location where DAF skim is transported in from multiple plants. In all cases, the Upcycle company manages all operations 24/7 and ensures compliance with all applicable environmental regulations.


proprietary, patent-pending, and Proven in high-volume, challenging environments

Our proprietary patent-pending FOX (Fat and Oil eXtraction) upcycles DAF skim through a proprietary process that pasteurizes it and separates out co-products, such as oils or proteins from treated (stick) water.


Sustainably produced proteins & oils from upcycled wastes
Upcycling is an important contributor to sustainability. Rather than negatively affecting the natural environment by injecting highly chemically treated sludge into landfills and other land disposal sites, upcycling processes extract a range of valuable commodities from it that live on through beneficial uses ranging from feed, to fuel, to fertilizer and beyond.
